EPIC Calls on FCC to Require Mobile Phone Carriers to Protect Privacy

EPIC, joined by Consumer Watchdog, submitted comments to the Federal Communications Commission on the privacy and security of information stored on mobile phones. The comments discussed the various privacy risks created by the business practices of many carriers, and recommended that the FCC require mobile carriers to implement comprehensive privacy and security protections based on Fair Information Practices. EPIC previously wrote to the FCC in 2007 to call for increased protections for customers' Customer Proprietary Network Information, and in 2001 to urge the FCC to establish fair location information practices.
